A stunning example of the iconic S Class S116 chassis 300SD diesel car owned by two ladies both from Beverley Hills, CA where the car has resided most of its life and only recently has moved down to Riverside County. The 300SD (M617.950) is a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-five diesel engine and was built for the American market only.Exterior color is astral silver paint (code 735) with blue leather interior and chrome bundt style wheels. Fresh paint and clear coat by Brinker Built Auto. All switches work, the engine runs like its new with only 85K original miles. This car will make a great daily driver or a garage queen. The original Becker Mexico radio is working and makes the already beautiful center counsel look the part. The wood is dark and not checked or faded, the chrome work is bright and without pits, some of the bright work on the trim is faded but overall its in very nice condition. These motors are known for being robust and running for over 600,000 miles without being rebuilt.
